Billy Joel – “Don’t Ask Me Why” – (1980)

“Don’t Ask Me Why” was the fourth single form Billy Joel’s huge 1980 album Glass Houses. It was a top 20 hit on the Hot 100, peaking at #19. One thing people often overlook about Billy Joel is that he dabbles in so many different styles. For instance, this song appears on a mostly rock-oriented album – but it is more folk-like (like his earlier music). But it also features a Latin paino solo and kind of a worldbeat backing track.
